covers and scripts – the process

Another brief look at the process behind creating comic books, from the creators themselves:

Cover for Invincible #7 Hardcover – artist Ryan Ottley shares his steps in creating a cover that features dozens of characters. It all starts with a digital sketch on a Wacom Cintiq tablet.

Script for The Sixth Gun – Writer Cullen Bunn goes into detail on his process for breaking down the story for an issue of his creator-owned series The Sixth Gun, from initial scene breakdowns all the way through final script. Two things I found interesting: his process and mine are fairly similar (though I’ve been trying to streamline mine), and he also shares some other methods he’s tried in the past and abandoned.
